Creating a Confident & Collaborative Place: Recovery & Reset after Coronavirus

It’s a worrying time for all our places with a focus on trying to keep people safe and to preserve livelihoods.

Now our thoughts have to start to turn to the future.


How do we harness the good things that have come out of a crisis to rebuild our economies and communities?


How do we make the most of what our places already have to offer?


How much are we looking to recover or to reset?


How do we create and amplify confidence?


thinkingplace and the Institute of Economic Development were delighted to bring together in conversation some of the leading thinkers and practitioners in place promotion and development. Hopefully this discussion helped to shape your plans as you seek to recover and reset your place.
